    Is that the one with a shield?. If so that is slow. Good for wide open areas, but I would think a pain in residentials or any lawns that have landscaping.

    The shielded sprayer does work good. I can go right to the edge of beds without slowing or even giving it much thought. In many cases the shield lifts overhanging flowers as I am spraying under them. Customers feel better about spraying near flower beds when they can't see the spray. More days are available for spraying because wind is less of a factor.
    I use the three shield setup. I think it has an eleven foot width. I suppose on city lots the 52" would be ok, but around here that would make for a very long day.
